I love homemade sugar scrubs! I love them even more when they smell wonderful! This particular sugar scrub smells especially great to me since I love chocolate and coconut desserts. And not only does it smell delicious, but it leaves my skin feeling lovely! Isn’t it great when you can have a skincare product that works well and doesn’t contain any strange chemicals?

This homemade sugar scrub is so easy and inexpensive to make! You could keep it for yourself, or you could give it as a great birthday or holiday gift (it’d make a great Mother’s Day present)! To make it look really pretty, consider putting it in a nice jar, like a Mason jar. Maybe tie a ribbon around the lid. You could even make up a cute gift tag!
